A body was found Saturday morning in Denver's Capitol Hill neighborhood.

The body was found on a sidewalk at 10th Avenue and Grant Street around 4:45 a.m.

Denver police said it appears the victim may have committed suicide.

While we don't know the circumstances of this case, experts say the warning side of suicide include:

  • Talking about wanting to die
  • Looking for a way to kill oneself
  • Talking about feeling hopeless or having no purpose
  • Talking about feeling trapped or in unbearable pain
  • Talking about being a burden to others
  • Increasing the use of alcohol or drugs
  • Acting anxious, agitated or recklessly
  • Sleeping too little or too much
  • Withdrawing or feeling isolated
  • Showing rage or talking about seeking revenge
  • Displaying extreme mood swings
